Slo Mo Trampoline FUN!

Ok, so my voice in slo mo when jumping on the trampoline equals hilarity. I sound completely drunk and wasted. “Dooooo youuuuur magic moooooves…!” Can’t stop laughing. In the second half of this vlog Ada graphically loses her top front tooth. Huge milestone!  


Sledding, Kentucky Style.

Yesterday evening this happened: I don’t think these pictures accurately portray the size of our sledding hill. It is massive. Almost like a mountainside. So steep it was difficult to walk up it! In this video we started at the bottom third of the hill because Ada was too tired to walk up any further. Tyler made the video. In this video Tyler tried sledding. I didn’t realize that he had only been sledding once before. I don’t think he had...

In the homeschool room (actually a dining room) the fireplace had this hideous strip of hot pink foam board about six inches wide and the length of the fireplace stuffed across the chimney hole where the smoke would go up, blocking it closed. You could see the pink foam board if you...

Cheeky Little Bugger.

Yesterday Tyler was in the kitchen buttering a biscuit that I’d just taken out of the oven. I’d gone upstairs to nurse Henry in bed, because Henry prefers to only nurse snuggled under the covers. According to Tyler he saw something out of the corner of his eye and glanced over to see one of the biscuits on the back of the pan lift up and fall back down. The pan was pushed up against the back of the stove, under...
